Hi!

Yesterday I put it off the co2 tank from the market. Some gas escape and the Tank O-Ring brakes!!.

I replace it for a new one bur I just found this on the web:

"Your tank is your investment - take care of it! Replace the tank o-ring as soon as you notice any frayed rubber, cracks, or warping. Lightly oil your o-ring as basic maintenance"

What should I use to lubricate?

Vaseline?
Gun oil?

Thanks a lot!!.

When I used Co2, I just dropped some Gold Cup (paintball oil) on it. After I got an on/off, I never had another tank oring break.

Been a long time here, but that is what I suggest to everyone that comes in my shop with the problem. Your local shop should have gold cup. If you dont have a local shop I suggest going through www.carolinapbs.com for all of your paintball needs, although I do not see that they carry gold cup. so I would say go here to get your gold cup but go to www.carolinapbs for everything else ;) Gold Cup (http://www.actionvillage.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/eCS/Store/en/-/USD/EasyAskSearch-Start;sid=oMTO8NkE0jnOT5wQlMcOWNPQqOkLOdnaT9Y=?sea rchType=USERSEARCH&searchTerm=gold+cup)

gold cup is the best for lubricate anything in the marker?

Here in Uruguay cost 27 U$S 8oz (http://www.800paintball.com/Shop/Control/Product/fp/vpid/1517474/vpcsid/0/SFV/30363) :(

and 5 U$S 1oz

Gold Cup is good. I use Dow33 on all my tank o-rings and line the ASA threads and sealing surface with Dow33 as well -

I perfer either Dow 33 or Dow 55 as well. Grainger stores carry them and it's cheap. Also great for swelling o-rings up a little bit to keep those o-rings to the proper tolerances!
